Barack Obama, our next President

Will Fox Correct The Record On The GOP's False Benghazi E-mail Claims?
The New York Times, however, obtained a copy of the e-mail in question and reported that the phrase conservatives are putting in the mouth of the State Department official -- "Islamic terrorists" - is in fact not used to describe the perpetrators of the attack. Rather, the official describes the perpetrators as having ties to "Islamic extremists" -- a distinction with a difference, according to the Times report:
[A] copy of the e-mail reviewed by The New York Times indicates that A. Elizabeth Jones, the senior State Department official who wrote it, referred to "Islamic extremists," not terrorists.
The distinction is important, administration officials said, because while the White House did not initially characterize the attack as terrorism, senior officials, including Ambassador Susan E. Rice, acknowledged the possibility that extremists had been involved in the assault.
Fox News is no stranger to carrying water for the Republican Party, and the network has led the charge to push Benghazi cover-up conspiracies. But now that the latest GOP line on Benghazi has been exposed, will Fox inform its viewers?

Media matters is up against ABC, NBC and CNN who are now reporting the coverup as much as Fox.

The NY Times is soon to be a journalistic dinosaur. They barely have any credibility left and have lost a substantial number of subscribers over recent years.

Obama is a murdering war criminal and has increased the number of people who hate the USA. He also supports murdering babies and let people die in Benghazi to save his own azz.

Wake up, libtard. Oh, sorry, I forgot. Zombies like you can't wake up. You are a communist scumbag without one ounce of common sense. Eff off.

White House: Republicans ignored Benghazi emails

Administration officials say top Republicans saw the emails two months ago and didn't express any issues

The emails about the September 2012 attack on the diplomatic post in Libya were shared with members of Congress during negotiations over the confirmation of CIA Director John Brennan. If Republicans had had major problems with what the emails revealed, they probably would have said something at the time and not confirmed Brennan 63-34, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said during his daily press briefing this afternoon.“This is an effort to accuse the administration of hiding something that we did not hide,” Carney said.

Credibility is in the eye of the beholder and thankfully for us it's only a minute percentage of the population. NYT is still recognised world wide as one of the great news papers for journalistic endeavour unlike Fox which is the subject of laughter all over the world. All news print are under threat, not because of just declining subscribers but more important advertising revenue. Google has stolen that away from them. Unfortunately for everyone, there will be less investigative journalism because of it just BS comments without facts. So things like Watergate won't see the light of day and the only news will be all made up like it is now without checking the facts. Much like your postings.

13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News
Where was your inquest after the Karachi attacks, Mr. Graham? Where were you after the Sana'a attacks, Mr. Hannity? What about all of the embassy attacks in Iraq that I didn't even list here, Mr. McCain? Do you realize how many people died in attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates when Bush was supposedly keeping us safe, Mr. Ailes? Just once I'd like to hear David Gregory or George Stephanopoulos or Wolf Blitzer ask a Republican member of Congress about the above timeline and why they said nothing at the time of each attack. Just once.
Nearly every accusation being issued about Benghazi could've been raised about the Bush-era attacks, and yet these self-proclaimed truth-seekers refused to, in their words, undermine the commander-in-chief while troops were in harm's way (a line they repeated over and over again during those years).
So we're only left to conclude the obvious. The investigations and accusations and conspiracy theories are entirely motivated by politics and a strategy to escalate this to an impeachment trial. In doing so, the Republicans have the opportunity not only to crush the president's second term, but also to sabotage the potential for a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Even if they never arrive at that goal, they have in their possession a cudgel formed of horseshit -- a means of flogging the current administration with the singularly effective Republican marketing/noise machine, including the conservative entertainment complex. Very seldom does this machine fail to revise history and distort the truth. Ultimately, they don't even need a full-blown impeachment proceeding when they have a population of way too many truthers and automatons who take all of these lies at face value -- not to mention dubiously sourced chunks of "truth" proffered by radio and cable news conspiracy theorists who, if nothing else, are masters at telling angry conservatives precisely what they want to hear: that the probably-Muslim president is weak on terrorism. And so they'll keep repeating "Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate!" without any regard for history or reality. Like always.

A psychological condition where liberals become sympathetic towards the kidnapper or terrorist, in which liberals develop emotional attachment with the abuser or controlling entity. Your obsession and addiction to FoxNews is amusing sonifiller...

You have to admit sonifiller - Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice do what they do best for the past 8 months LIE.

In Immigration Bill Talks, House Group Raises Voice
By ASHLEY PARKER

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group in the House of Representatives has been meeting on and off for four years behind closed doors, working on its own version of legislation to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws. But with a comprehensive bill already making its way through the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House group is fast losing its chance to shape the debate percolating on Capitol Hill, let alone put forth a proposal of its own.

“I think a lot of us believed in this bipartisan group that we would have finished quite some time ago,” said Representative Xavier Becerra, Democrat of California and a member of the group.“I think you really make it tough for yourself, and I hope House Republicans would agree with me on that, that you make it difficult to believe that you’re for fixing the broken immigration system and getting our economy on track unless you really seriously try to start in May.”

Already, the House Judiciary Committee has begun introducing a series of bills pegged to certain parts of an immigration overhaul, in a move designed, in part, to press the bipartisan group to action.

One major block, aides say, is reluctance on the part of Republicans in the group to accept a deal between the nation’s leading business and labor organizations, which would establish a guest worker program, known as a W-Visa program, for low-skilled, year-round temporary workers, those who perform seasonal work but are allowed to stay in the country throughout the year.

Though the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the A.F.L.-C.I.O. reached an agreement in late March on a guest worker program, which was incorporated into legislation drafted by a similar bipartisan group in the Senate, House Republicans believe the deal is too favorable to labor and are trying to rework it. The current agreement starts the number of available W-Visas at 20,000, capping it at 200,000 visas annually, and limits the number of visas available to construction occupations at 15,000 annually.

Democrats in the House group say there was an implicit agreement to accept whatever deal the business and labor groups agreed upon. But Republicans want to raise the overall cap, particularly on construction visas.

It's a respectable news source. But if you prefer NBC News:
Come Sunday, Obama headed for the Andrews Air Force Base golf course as he does on many weekends when the weather is nice. But he only played nine holes instead of his customary 18 leaving after about three hours. The reporters who accompany him on public outings didn't think anything was amiss and thought the chilly, rainy weather played into the president's decision to leave several hours earlier than usual.
What they didn't know was that Obama was heading back for that final meeting on the bin Laden operation.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/42874398/ns/world_n...
So what's the big deal anyway? He plays golf no matter what's going on. Remember his million dollar golf game with Tiger Woods right after the sequestration - which was his own idea? He must not have taken his own words of doom and gloom to heart.
'million dollar golf game with Tiger Woods'? The day was President Obama's official day off. It was Presidents Day.:-D

As for YOUR reading of Nate Silver's 'prediction that the GOP holds the House in 2014'and gain seats in Senate', you better read Nate more carefully because he also says that GOP gains are problematic ,and mostly hinge on whether or not they can continue to block Obama from achieving anything of his policies , like on immigration reform , gun control , and climate change/economics. In other words, how long do you think the Republicans can keep up the pretense of their smoke & mirrors dog&pony show trial 'Benghazi hearings before most Americans see through it as political subterfuge?
UAW members voted for UAW officers who robbed the pension funds.

They deserve nothing.

Taxpayer funds should not be used to save failed companies.
